It’s unclear for how long, but according to multiple news outlets, Carson Daly began co-hosting “Today” during the 9 a.m. hour on Tuesday. Daly stepped in after Billy Bush was suspended for his involvement in a lewd conversation with Donald Trump back in 2005.
Daly, 43, is expected to co-host alongside Tamron Hall. Right now, it is unclear whether Daly will continue to cover for Bush in future days.
As Rare previously reported, network execs announced that Bush would be suspended from the show following the release of the decade-old video where he and presidential hopeful Donald Trump made crude comments about women.
Monday morning, “TODAY” host Savannah Guthrie addressed the suspension in a live broadcast.
“Pending further review of the matter, NBC News has suspended Billy Bush, the host of ‘TODAY’s’ third hour, for his role in that conversation with Donald Trump,” Guthrie told viewers
NBC has yet to make an announcement addressing Bush’s future on the show.
